A good movie

To be honest, it has been ages since I have seen this movie and I should definitely re-watch it at some point. First of all, , even though I consider Terry Gilliam one of the most interesting directors in the world, I have noticed that I have actually sometimes a hard time to really connect with his movies because they are very often so surrealist and so over-the-top. Well, even though there was... read more

Ambitious enough for several films, and sometimes it feels like three of them stitched together at times, The Fisher King may just be Terry Gilliam’s greatest film, Brazil is a strong(er) contender in my opinion.

" Terry Gilliam deliver another eccentric comedy that combines romance, surrealistic fantasy and drama into one nice cauldron of motion picture history. It is also the most accessible of his films with crowd-pleasing warmth and atmosphere. Robin Williams fit perfectly as a tragic alcoholic. Mercedes Ruehl do the role of her lifetime too. "

30 From 91: My Favorite Films From 1991 (30 movies items)

" Ah yes, the beginning of the nineties was a grand time for films. It was a time when Jeff Bridges was the prince of good quality, straight-forward acting, Amanda Plummer was the princess of quirky characters, Mercedes Ruehl ruled as the Queen of cleavage and when it came to the box office, Robin Williams was the King. Or in this particular case, the Fisher King. Which I guess means that he was a king who was more fishy than the one who ruled before him (and I predict that that is a quip that "
